The MetaPod – XY: BREAKthrough set review w/ WanderingVenser

Hello Nurglings!

Welcome to the first official blog post where I announce the fact that our “Pokémon talk” recordings shall now be called:

The Metapod Log

I’m aware that this recording is VEEERY long, but we talked about every single card and we may have spent a bit to much talking about the early bad cards just to rush through them towards the end.

BUT, still had a great and fun time reviewing this card for card, and I hope you will enjoy it as well.

Thanks for watching/listening!

Pokémon TCG Online – Talking About Anicent Origins w/ ReclusiveSlowbro & WanderingVenser

Hello everybody!

Just uploaded a YouTube vid for the first time in ages! Well, it was recorded live on stream but still a video. It’s Me, WanderingVenser and ReclusiveSlowbro (two other great Pokemon TCG Online streamers) that talk about the latest Pokemon TCG set!

Sadly Twitch decided to mute some of the audio but it’s only about 10 minutes out of 2 long hours. So still plenty of cool things to listen in on.

You can find us all on Twitch.tv:

MTG – Modern Masters – Booster art + Spoilers!

Hello Nurglings!

So we have some awesome pieces of pictures here for you: the booster arts for Modern Masters. And with that, also a big guess on which cards these artworks represent!

MTG - Modern Masters - Booster Art 1
This part of artwork is probably attached to the card:
Vedalken Shackles

 

 

 

MTG - Modern Masters - Booster Art 2
And this is for sure:
Sword of Fire and Ice

 

 

 

 

 

MTG - Modern Masters - Booster Art 3
And the final one we already know as:
MTG - Modern Masters - Spoiler - Dark Confidant

Until next time Nurglings, take care.
Cya soon!

Magic the Gathering – M14 Spoiler – Archangel of Thune

Hello Nurglings!

So the MTG set M14 is just around the corner, and we’re starting to get spoilers handed to us around the net, through advertisement, websites, articles and so on. We’ve already seen the new Slivers and most people seem to be somewhat disappointed in them, they don’t feel as much as Slivers as the ones before them, but we’re not here to talk about Slivers. We’re here to talk about Angels. Or rather, a certain Angel with the name: Archangel of Thune!

(Oh and also: LOOK AT THAT AMAZING ARTWORK! I’m already calling this out as one of my top 5 arts from the set.)

MTG - M14 Spoiler - Archangel of Thune

So I don’t know if your thoughts trigger likes yours do, but I instantly thought of Baneslayer Angel when I saw this card. No it’s not as good as her, but it’s clearly a hint of her power to make us all excited. And are we? Maybe? Hm.

The question is really, is this card strong enough to go in to decks that are already playing white? Or will there be a completely new deck formed because of this card? I think we can see decks with this card in it for sure and I even feel tempted to start working on a G/W deck or even a Junk deck to fit this baby in to it! Okay… so maybe Bant is the best way to go with this card, giving you control, mana utility and aggression.

Deck lists will be out as soon as we know more about the set and I hope that you will come back to read all about it here.

Until next time Nurglings, take care.
Cya soon!

Cloudstone Curio + Dragon’s Maze Spoiler – Beck // Call

Hello Nurglings!

Long time no read!

lets discuss cloudstone curio

So do you know why the “Cloudstone Curio” has been going up in price like craaazy lately? Well you’ve probably noticed that the spoiler season for the next set ‘Dragon’s Maze’ started, and that means that a lot of discussion about cards and future decks are taking place.One of the spoiled cards made everyone go crazy over Cloudstone Curio, and that is the new split card down below!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dragon's Maze spoiler Beck Call

So can you see the insanity? Cloudstone is no stranger to infinite combos in EDH decks, and it seems we will now see it’s use in Modern for the “first” time. So the idea of the combo is to have Cloudstone in play, cast Beck and then start looping some mana creatures. For example this little beauty right here:

Burning-Tree Emissary

Not only is she easy to cast, but she also creates the mana needed to cast the same one that you’ve returned to your hand, keep playing the two creatures over and over, and you can draw a lot of cards, until you reach a storm card to cast in your opponents face…. for a lot of damage.

So do you have any awesome decks or ideas where to use the new card Beck // Call?
If you do, post a link in the comments and maybe I will share it on here!

Until next time Nurglings, take care!
Cya soon.

MTG – Commander’s Arsenal – First look at content – Spoiler Sylvan Library!!!

Hello Nurglings!

I’m so excited! As you may or may not now, Wizards of the Coast has planned to stop the production of premium decks to give space for a new series of products called Commander’s Arsenal. These sets will reprint old cards with new artworks and foil versions. Anyway, let’s take a look at what we get from the very first Commanders Arsenal set.

Above we see:
18 premium foil cards
10 oversized premium foil cards
120 UltraPRO foil card sleeves
20 double-sided Battle Marks (+ and –)
A life counter that goes up to 99



Here is also a piece of artwork that has not been related to a card yet. It looks like a new Command Tower artwork though.

Until next time Nurglings, take care.
Cya soon!
